I just noticed that on the posts on this thread so far we have babies born Feb. 18, 19, 20, 21--thought that was kinda cool. lexbeach--actually, Leela has thrush again now--arrrg! I've gotten rid of it in the past with grapefruit seed extract the first time and gentian violet the second time. I'm not sure what to try next. We don't have a pediatrician yet--we're not vaxing, so no well baby visits, but I've been thinking it wouldn't be a bad idea to at least make contact with one, or a family practitioner, in case we ever need one. I think I might call a naturopath in town whom I've heard good things about from my mama friends. If I do, I'll let you know how it goes.
Corrie, Leela LOVES being nekkid too--sometimes stripping her down totally stops a crying jag. I just started showering with her. I have fabric to make a mesh shower sling but haven't gotten around to it yet, so I'm using my Maya Wrap (I don't use it otherwise, never could get comfy with it). She loves the shower--loves having water run all over her face. Yesterday she fell fast asleep in there--it was so cute!
Corrie---what has your EC experience been like so far? I'm really intrigued by the idea, but just can't get myself to implement it. DD only poops once a day now, or every other day, but when she is naked, her peeing just seems to random and without warning. I guess once you get started you start to get more in tough with subtle signals. I'm getting close to the end of the optimum window of opportunity, so I guess I'd better start if I'm gonna do it at all.
Great to hear from the other Februrary mamas!
